Air Quality

In our region, the most likely source of reduced air quality is wildfire smoke, with wildfires typically occurring in warmer drier months of summer.

To help ensure player safety, Highline Soccer Association is providing guidance to club members when to continue with practices and games.

When the Air Quality Index (AQI) reaches 150, The HSA recommends cancelling outdoor activities and we recommend the PSCAA - Current Air Quality Map for source data.

The HSA recognizes that individual players, families, and volunteers may have lower tolerances for airborne particulates than others and every club member should make a decision based on the well-being of their individual child and themselves.  An image from Air Now is provided below for guidance.

Forecasting AQI is challenging as air quality is localized and highly variable.  When cancelling activities, please inform relevant parties as soon as possible, ideally 1.5 hours before the event.

Coaches:  If the event is a game, please inform your opposing coach as early as possible.  It is also important to contact HSA ( [email protected]) and your club (WSSC - [email protected], HSC - [email protected], HSA Select - [email protected]) w
hen cancelling a game, so we can cancel the referees and recoup field costs. If you intend to reschedule a cancelled game, please let us know.

Coach contact info is available via the Washington Youth Soccer (WYS) Schedule page when you click on their name for your match.  It will appear in a pop-up box.  Links to the current schedules are available via Team Central.
